Strength for longevity

Strength training can help you get stronger and look and feel better with just a few short sessions each week. Strength training can be performed with free weights such as barbells and dumbbells, by using weight machines, or with no equipment at all.

Weight-training tips:

  • The American Heart Association recommends strength training at least twice a week.

  • Doing each exercise 8 to 12 times is usually enough to work your muscles.

  • You know you’re doing enough work if your muscles are so tired you can barely get through the 12th repetition.

  • Start slowly, and gradually increase the resistance or weight as the exercises become easier.

Until recently, insufficient evidence to support the role of strength training in health promotion coupled with the belief that it should only be done by strength athletes and bodybuilders meant that the general population saw little reason to ever engage in resistance training. Thankfully, all that has now changed and people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds are hitting the gym to lift weights!

Quite often we have found that its scary starting a new weightlifting regime as you are unsure where to start, thats why we train you properly in the aspects of lifting weights which include
